Autauga County Man Sentenced To 210 Months In Federal Prison For Role In Drug Organization

MONTGOMERY, Ala. - Mark Edward (52), of Deatsville, Alabama, was sentenced on October 15, 2014 to serve 210 months in prison, to be followed by five years of supervised release for conspiracy to distribute a controlled substance, announced Assistant Special Agent in Charge Clay Morris of the Drug Enforcement (DEA) and U.S. Attorney George L. Beck Jr. for the Middle District of Alabama.

According to court documents, Elliot was the leader of a large methamphetamine distribution operation that was responsible for bringing several pounds of the controlled substance from Atlanta, Georgia to central Alabama, including Autauga, Elmore and Montgomery counties.  Elliot and his co-conspirators were arrested in March of 2013 after law enforcement executed five federal search warrants and found large amounts of “ice” methamphetamine, cash, and firearms, along with several vehicles that were being used to transport illegal drugs. 

During the investigation, it was discovered that several individuals in this case had used violence, threats of violence, and intimidation to further their drug dealing efforts and to collect money.  Investigators also learned that Elliott, also known as “Mighty Whitey,” was a captain in the Aryan Brotherhood, a powerful prison gang with white supremacy beliefs. Elliott has tattoos of Swastikas, the words “White Power” and SS in lightning bolts on his body, all tattoos that indicate membership in the Aryan Brotherhood.

This case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, the Elmore County Sheriff’s Office, the Gulf Coast High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area Task Force, the Central Alabama Drug Task Force, the Autauga County Sherriff’s Office, the Wetumpka Police Department and the Prattville Police Department.
